he rising stars of the jewellery world
New York-based Bochic has a bohemian spirit. Creative director David Joseph combines old Hollywood glamour with a vintage look, using hand-carved materials he finds on his frequent trips to Asia, such as Serbian mammoth, English jet and watermelon tourmalines. London jeweller Leyla Abdollahi’s designs are edgy yet tasteful. Her latest range, Lust & Lure, draws on the art deco period, as shown (above) in a yellow gold pendant with diamonds, emeralds, onyx and ruby.
The debut collection from Hong Kong’s Van Eyck Fine Jewelry, Birds of Paradise, comprises 25 intricate rings inspired by rare Papua New Guinean birds. The brand, named after the Flemish artist credited as the first master of oil painting, works mainly with large, fancy colour diamonds. The Ribbon-tailed Astrapia ring in gold features a 1.29-carat fancy brown pink diamond, pink sapphires, and black and brilliant diamonds.
